Abstract:
			
A collection of 13 original articles, this book is intended to provide
a series of discussions about multiple aspects of second language
writing, presenting chapters that collectively address a range of
issues that are important to new teachers at the post-secondary
level. The chapters provide scholarly visions, insight, and
interpretation oriented toward explaining the field of teaching
academic writing to non-native speakers. The book is designed to
provide foundational content-knowledge in this area, each chapter
authored by recognized experts in the field. Throughout the chapters,
presentation and review of scholarship is presented primarily in the
interest of understanding how such knowledge directly or potentially
imparts teaching, making this a pedagogically relevant book. In
addition to helping train new teachers, the book will serve as an
updated reference book for practising teachers and scholars to
consult.
